Summary Vinay and his friends entered a future contest called, The Future City Competition. This competition has been going on for 26 years. This year’s future assignment was “ The Age-Friendly City.” This designing competition requests skill and imagination. You had to make a city that older people can live in. Only grade six – eight can enter. 44,000 people entered, but only a few people got chosen for the finals, gratefully vinay and his team were one of them. The finals were held in Washington D.C. First place went to “Halona.” That was Vinay’s team! When Vinay got asked a question after he won, one of his answers were,” Not only does it teach you engineering, but it also teaches you qualities that you need in life, like public speaking, leadership skills, and teamwork.” for winning 1st place Vinay and his crew got a free trip to U.S. Space Camp and $7,500 for their schools STEM program.


Personal Response I chose this article because I like the future, and to me the future sounds better then now. I think this article matters because the future might hold bad or good things, so it is important to get a sense of what the future holds.
